OXYGEN - CLEAN & LEAN
Oxygen's code output is clean, lean, and free of bloat which is why pages built with Oxygen load quickly and get excellent Google PageSpeed & Lighthouse scores.
Here's a screenshot of the load time of a page built with Oxygen with a 349 millisecond load times - with no caching or optimization plugins.
This is typical when using Oxygen.
bloat loaded by other builders on a supposedly blank page
tests conducted with Elementor v2.3.4 w/ Elementor Pro v2.2.3 + Elementor Hello Theme v1.0, Divi Theme 3.17.6, Beaver Builder (22.214.171.124) w/ Beaver Themer (126.96.36.199) + Beaver Builder Theme, and Oxygen 2.2. jQuery was not included since it is loaded by WordPress by default.
As you can see, Oxygen is 50x leaner than Divi, 25x leaner than Elementor, and 10x leaner than Beaver Builder.
Oxygen generally only loads the scripts and styles absolutely required by your design.
But the other builders load everything, even when you don't use it. Animation styles, icon libraries, motion effects, slider scripts, and much more are loaded on ever page, even when you won't be using 95% of it.
Some people say bloat doesn't matter, because after all, modern internet connections are fast. Running a 5Mb page through a performance testing tool with an extremely high speed internet connection could give a similar time as a 100Kb page, even though the 5Mb page is 50 times bigger.
But not every internet connection is always fast. Here's what happens to download time for 1Mb of data when connection speeds slow down.
Slow internet is common. We've all been on airport wifi, on a cell phone without a great signal, or even in the corner of a friend's house where the wifi just isn't that great.
In cases like this, a bloated website will slow to crawl and you'll lose business. But one without bloat will still load quickly.
Here's a chart from Google showing what happens to your bounce rate for every extra second it takes your page to load.
People start leaving, even after just a 1.5 second delay.
And slow websites will decrease your conversion rate. Even for the people that stay - they're less likely to purchase. Amazon did a study showing billions in lost revenue for every 1 second increase in load time.
CDN Friendly — Use CloudFlare, Amazon CloudFront, or any other CDN. CSS is cached and query strings are avoided, making Oxygen work with all CDNs.
Google Font Weight Chooser — Force the use of only the chosen font weights, reducing the amount of font files that must be downloaded to display your site.
Bloat Eliminator — WordPress loads various unnecessary scripts and styles by default, which you can disable in Oxygen in one click.
In summary, Oxygen's reputation as the most performance-oriented visual builder around is well deserved.Get Oxygen
